2) Jolly Roger is a spanish Stoner Rock band with Grunge, Heavy Metal and Punk Rock influences founded in 1999 in Vilafranca (Barcelona).
With the following line-up: Xavi Juan (lead guitar and vocals), Toni Hidalgo (drums), David Ruz (bass) y Francesc Bes (rhythm guitar and vocals) they recorded their first demo, "Jolly Roger" in 2003. In 2005, the band recorded "R.P.M.", where you can find hits like "Comosellame" or "Vendido".
In 2006 they recorded "Cactus", longer than "R.P.M." and more mature. Later, in 2008, before doing a couple of their first important gigs in Spain they recorded "Virus" and they went on tour since 2009, when a videogame company asked them for making the soundtrack for the videogame "Holokaust". Consequently, they released that soundtrack being converted as a conceptual album.
In october of 2009, Xavi Juan announced by their myspace that the line-up was going to be changed for staying like this: Xavi Juan (lead guitar and vocals), Toni Hidalgo (rhythm guitar and vocals), Javi Rojano (drums) y Xavi Muntaner (bass).
However, a couple of months later Xavi Muntaner left the band and he was replaced again by the founder member David Ruz.
In 2010 the band did some gigs opening for Brant Bjork and ¡Pendejo! as a part of the tour of their latest album "Supernova" (to be released) and becoming each day bigger as a band.
3) Fatal Error was released in 2007 to extremely high critical acclaim in the Holy City, the Vatican. However, it was critically panned everywhere else on Earth. Regardless, the Pope himself deemed the music to be the future of Catholicism and immediately mandated memorization of it by all populants of the Holy City.
Andy is an expert at programming and Brian is just gay, and a douche. But Holy Jesus loves their music.
They will be headlining Palooza Palooza 5 this year in Naperville, IL.
